Rescue

Weighing just a tiny 10g, our first baby bird arrived earlier this month, and the nestling Robin has gone from strength to strength.

Originally discovered on the ground, cold and alone, he was nowhere near ready for life outside of his nest, but, just a couple of weeks later... look at him now!

Rehabilitation

Whilst, he may not look happy about being given a second chance, we assure you when he's tucking into his daily food rations, he's the chirpiest little robin you'll ever meet.

After having one to one care with fosterer Steve, who had the difficult task of feeding the nestling from dawn to dusk, every 30minutes, he has now been upgraded to one of our flight cages, where he can practice his flight skills, and forage for worms till his hearts content.

Being just at the start of our orphan season, we're sure this little guy will soon be joined by others, giving him time to learn appropriate robin behaviour. Stayed tuned...
